Angela Yung


Angela Yung started developing her passion for music at age 5, practicing on a battery-operated, 2-octave toy piano. She took unofficial lessons with her sister's high school classmate, then enrolled in group lessons at the local community center. At age 9, she began taking traditional lessons from Mrs. Huanyu Dou. By the seventh grade, she had already completed the Advanced Level (Level 10) of the Certificate of Merit program (with Branch Honors and Convention) as the youngest student to do so in Mrs. Ning Chen's piano studio. Although her fingers and hand reach are much shorter than other students her age, she has been studying with Steinway artist Dr. Natsuki Fukasawa since 2014.

Angela has taken every opportunity to share her music with the community despite having to deal with atopic dermatitis. Since elementary school, she has been a part of the band, playing clarinet and mallet percussion. She was featured at her sixth grade promotion, shocking teachers and parents with her performance of ""Fantasie Impromptu"" by Chopin. For five years, she has been the choir accompanist of her middle school and high school's vocal ensemble groups. In 2012 and 2013, she reached out to senior homes and Alzheimer's Cafes in the Sacramento region and performed for their patients during holiday gatherings. She recorded her own CD in 2013 and received the NC Piano Achievement Award at age 12. She is actively competing year-round and has received multiple awards and superior rankings from events such as the Baroque Festival and the Go for the Gold Competition. In November 2017, she was the recipient of a $250 scholarship from the Ghiglieri Competition at CSU (California State University) Stanislaus. She currently tutors several students in keyboard theory and created/hosted an enrichment summer camp in Elk Grove, CA.

Besides her achievements in music, Angela was a completer of the Kumon math and reading program, earning awards such as Student of the Year, Great Effort, Fruits of Kumon each year. She attained her 1st Degree Black Belt in TaeKwonDo, and distributes breakfast to the homeless at 7 am on weekends. Despite the age restriction, Angela volunteered in the Family Birth Center/NICU for over a year at the Dignity Health Methodist Hospital of Sacramento, and switched to the Emergency Department in April 2018, working a four-hour shift every Sunday morning.
